Jon CarrollÂ (b. 1943) was a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle from 1982 until his retirement in 2015. Â He still writes in his own blog, Jon Carroll Prose. Â His style is both fun to read and very quotable — this is the second of three Carroll quotations in my collection.
The Chronicle maintains an archive of Jon Carroll columns, but sadly they are behind the paywall.
